  • 220th FTU Salon: Extreme conditions

    Well, be it hot summer, cold winter, wild waters, mountain climbing or any other situation we can all consider "extreme", here's what you have to do:

    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

    2. Upload your entry to your FTU user gallery (all entries must be present in an FTU gallery, which you automatically get if you are registered on the FTU forum), so if you aren't registered, you will need to if you would like to join the fun!)

    3. Use the gallery IMG code or the 'Post New Thread' Advanced Mode 'My Pics' facility to display your picture in a response to this message. If you are having trouble with this, post a message for some help here and we'll gladly assist. It becomes easy after a while!

    4. You can post two pictures, but only two entries per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that's OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you intend doing.

    5. The decision of the curator at the end of the two weeks is final - don't give him or her a hard time about it; this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

    6. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator and, as soon as possible, post a message starting a new thread in the FTU Salon board, with details of the new theme. That opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    7. The curator can't enter his or her own salon!

    Enjoy yourself and don't take it too seriously, itís supposed to be fun.

    Closing date and time: Midnight GMT on Sunday 16th July.

              Just back from a motorcycle tour of the east coast of Canada. Lots of torrential rain which I didn't stop to get a picture of. But extreme conditions doesn't only apply to weather. After putting the bike on reserve in some wilderness country I punched in the coordinates of the nearest gas to the GPS and was directed here, 18km off the main road and nearing the bottom of my tank. I limped on to the next station under extreme conditions...



              OK... OK, but it was extreme to me at the time...

                        Hi everyone.

                        We still have a bit more than a day to participate.

                        It would be good if we could have a few more pictures.

                        Kind regards,
                        Rogerio

                            Hi, Everyone.

                            It's time to end this salon.

                            Several very good pictures, but the one I believe that best capture the "Extreme" is Bitrix's Snowstorm.

                            So, it's up to you, Bitrix, to come up with the 221st salon.

                            Best of luck to you.

                            I Thank everyone who participated but I wished there were a few more entries.

                            Best regards,
                            Rogerio

                              Thank you Rogeiro.

                              For me that photo is one of my better. It's a pitty that there are so few partitipants.
                              I will post a new theme shortly
